3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber sent from Idaho as a gift. Thin head with lacing. Pine and citrusy hops but unlike a lot of IPA varieties it has a pretty decent malt backbone that's a bit biscuity. A good mix. I think the 65 IBU range is the sweet spot for me.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: 8-oz. (I think) hotel glass
From: Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho
Price: $8.99 for a mix and match variety 6-pack
Purchased: Dec. 19, 2013
Consumed: Dec. 20, 2013
Poured a honey orange color with 1-to-2 fingers of bubbly white head. Lots of bubbles coming up. Uneven sporadic lacing on the sides. Below average retention on the top.
The smell initially reminded me of an orange creamsicle. Got orange, nectarine, some grapefruit and sweet floral notes. Very nice on the nose.
Tasted not quite as explosive as the nose, but still good nonetheless. Got orange peel, orange, nectarine, grapefruit, pretty bitter, floral hops, citrus hops and tropical notes.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Bitter finish.
Very tasty beer. Would love to try it again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Bob’s.
Pours a rich maize with a full white head that leaves extensive lacing along the sides of my tulip glass. In addition to pine, the nose presents a range of fruit: pineapple, lemon, and uncommonly, a powerful hit of strawberry. Juicy flavor, grapefruit and lemon, restrained cracker malts. Plenty drinkable.
It’s hard to knock it out of the park with a straight-ahead IPA these days -- too much competition out there -- but this is just the kind I like, juicy and aromatic, tropical fruit, not an overwhelming bitter oil finish, malts that know their place. A really nice offering for my first taste of 10 barrel.

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is kind of stinky! It kind of smells like old socks along with faint grapefruit and vegetal offnotes. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a long-sustaining white head that leaves lace. Taste is not as bad as the aroma, but it’s a really basic IPA profile. Weird.

Nice IPA, right amounts of hop bitterness, but still smooth enough to enjoy. SLight lingering ont he palate, but not overpowering. Amber with beige head, normal IPA nose.

From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is golden amber with a lingering foamy white head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. The aroma is of floral and grassy hops, resin, and even some pear. The body is medium. The taste is well hopped up with a kind of butterscotch flavor going on. A nice Northwestern "hops galore" beer to drink.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden rusty burnt orange color with a nice head. Nose is mostly citrus withsome pine and resin. Taste is bitter sweet with prominent citrus and resin notes. Finish is sweet and bitter and moderately long. A solid IPA. Quaff Score 7 / 10
